Benfica fullback Coentrao reveals Real Madrid talks

Benfica fullback Fabio Coentrao has confirmed he's in talks with Real Madrid.

Coentrao has made no secret he hopes to further his career at Real, and has now cast further doubt on where he will be plying his trade after the summer.

"My future is not yet certain," he told RTP. "I know there is interest from Real Madrid, I have already said what I had to say.

"Now, I am going on holiday and then we will see what is going to happen."

"If I leave Benfica, I will return one day, it's a promise on my part, but Benfica must want it, too.

"I have always said I love Benfica and, if I leave, I take the club in my heart."
